Advertisement

A boot camp-style course for young people from Canterbury who have Asbos or are known to police has been set up.

During a week-long programme they will be taught outdoor survival skills, personal discipline and bush craft.

The scheme is run by Challenger Troop, a youth leadership organisation, together with Kent Police and community safety teams.

Based on the Army's training camp experience, the course is held on MoD training grounds near Folkestone.
